What a surprise in my own Southern California backyard! Ocean front room added to the feel of actually being right on the beach. Loved using the fireplace as one day it was cloudy and very windy. Room had what we needed, clean, staff friendly and helpful, beach chairs provided, walking distance to restaurants, and continental breakfast had all you needed to start the day. Yes, there were dings here and there but it didn't detract from the view and location!
